The national museum is superb one of the best museums in Scotland has a wide variety of exhibits and is well worth a visit it has something for everyone and is a great way to spend a few hours.
It’s like a combination of most of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC, with exhibits ranging from Scottish and Edinburgh history, natural history, technology, and culture and anthropology.

They give you a self guided tour machine, the great thing about that is it has an extended part for your hand to hold it, way more comfortable then other museums.

After a lot of history, architecture, museums and pubs this is a great spot to take the kids for a fun experience (fun for adults too).
One of the most interesting museums visited in the last few months, very enjoyable for both kids and adults.

The weaving shed is like a working museum with many of the looms and machines nearly a century old.
Until a few days ago I knew nothing about weaving and was expecting a museum.
The Scottish Fisheries Museum Anstruther 43.3 km away
#1 of 1 Museums in Anstruther
There is a lot to see, it is laid out in a clear and interesting way, and you are encouraged to photograph it, touch it and get involved in it in a way that few museums let you.
One of the most interesting museums I have visited in years.
Surgeons' Hall Museums Edinburgh 1.4 km away

We also took part in an architectural drawing class as part of the festival of museums which was fun and unexpected, we also learnt a lot about drawing techniques and watercolouring.

Having visited the National Coal Mining Museums for England (Overton, near Wakefield) and Wales (Blaenavon), I was interested to see how Scotland's version compared.
It’s a very impressive and extensive museum nowadays - it brings the experience of coal mining through the ages to life through exhibits, first hand accounts, audiovisual displays, and a great interactive tour of...

The UK and Ireland are the two best countries when it comes to free access to national museums, galleries, and libraries.
As with most of the museums in Edinburgh, entry is open with donations accepted, and the main hall as you come in is a beautiful space, opening up to the upper floors, and a frieze of historical figures running ar...

This really is a fantastic little museum and Historic Scotland should be commended for ensuring it is preserved for generations to come.
Small museum with friendly staff and a real Blackhouse to explore complete with peat fire.
Mull Museum Tobermory
#1 of 3 Museums in Tobermory
In a way, it is exemplary of how much you can do with relatively little, as opposed to what happens in important museums that do so little with so much.
Yes it perhaps the smallest of museums we've ever visited but it is packed with interesting exhibits about the area and it's history.
Scottish National Gallery Edinburgh 0.6 km away

Arguably, one can see other types of art in other cities' museums, but the Scottish gallery offers a wonderful exposure to the great Scotts artists from before Raeburn to where the Modern takes over with the Color...
As an art historian who worked at the Met, I can get a wee bit snobbish about smaller museums, but the Scottish National Gallery delivered one gem after another.

Throughout our trip we visited many different military museums, often inside other attractions, and this was the one that stands out the most.
U.S. military museums could learn a lot from these regimental museums.

Most of the information is presented in fairly dense blocks of text, visitors accustomed to more flashy exhibits typical of major city museums may find this off-putting.
The museum had an amazing amount of artifacts and historic documents accessible for visitors to read/view, and the displays within the blackhouses were well set up! We enjoyed our visit, and were happy to find Flo...
Dynamic Earth Edinburgh 1.8 km away

Our 10 and 15 year olds have just about had enough of castles, cathedrals, museums and great houses, so we were looking for something different to do in Edinburgh.
Our Dynamic Earth is an impressive 21st century style, interactive museum which covers all aspects of the Earth's formation, development and ecology.

Museum of Islay Life Port Charlotte
#1 of 2 Museums in Port Charlotte
One of the drawbacks of big museums (the V&A, for example) is that they are *so* big that it's difficult to take everything in, and impossible to see everything and spend time actually looking at things.
this museum has loads of very interesting objects of every day life in years past, many interesting photographs and stories and will be enjoyed by all age groups, they also have some very good stone carvings to see

In many of the cities my wife and I have visited there are smaller museums that are interesting and serve as an oasis of calm during tourist season.
Free admission (as there is for most museums/galleries in Edinburgh) which was a bonus.

One of our favourite venues and a great walk along the Waters of Leith from Stockbridge. 2 excellent museums within 200 yards of each other and sharing the responsibility of modern art and exhibitions for Edinburgh.
The permanent collection is interesting--I particularly liked a Hockney and the Doig "MIlky Way", but the best part was the Surrealist exhibit which featured many Dali's and Magrittes gathered from museums I had n...

All too often, museums honor the homes and contributions of only the wealthy.
This small, free museum brings these people's lives to our attention with life-size dioramas, stories of real people's lives, and myriad artifacts.
